    I'll admit, Hatter, while you have some interesting ideas here, they don't match my conception of the game.

    That said, I think it would be cool to see a Shards or fan supplement that does Changeling-by-way-of-Fables. They have a lot of similar themes, and I could see it mechanically adapting fairly well.

    WHEW!

    My heart stopped for a hot second....

  • Forsaken didn't really strike me. That and Awakening are the two nWoD lines that never really clicked for me.

    I'm not against culturally specific splats. It's just they felt clumsily handled back in the day, probably in large part because they were written by middle class white American men....

  • That's between the people and their tribe, who usually have rules in place about who does and doesn't qualify for membership.

    But if you're looking to explore the heritage of your 1/64th Cherokee ancestry (and it's always Cherokee isn't it?), proving how you're a special snowflake probably takes precedence over your ethnic and cultural solidarity.

    All that said, the Wendigo and Uktena presented a worrying problem of how minorities are represented. Those sort of token ethnic splats were prevalent in Old World, and I'd hope the new edition takes efforts to steer away from...

  • Your take on the Get is an interesting one, and I'm sure far more faithful to the setting.

    I'd picture elements (granted, not all) of the Get that sometimes reflect and interact with the stalwart, insular, and sometimes out-and-out racist elements of military special forces, well armed and disciplined backwater survivalists, and hard right militant conservatives in America and Europe.

    I think we just have a difference in philosophy and preferences that really can't be breached. That said, yours is more in line with the books, and what I'm looking for probably isn't in...

  • They wouldn't NECESSARILY follow human cultural trends (and if that's not the route you'd want to take, it's perfectly valid), but I see a couple of reasons why it would make sense to take that route, and why it's a direction I personally prefer.

    From a lore perspective, it makes sense. These are creatures who live half in the world of man and half in the spiritual. Who they were before their first change informs who they become. The attitudes of their kinfolk and the other people they see in their daily lives influences their decisions, and the political and social attitudes of the...

  • I think it's a question of recognizing the inherently self-destructive hypocrisies of the world. I think most of us recognize that inclusiveness is important, but that doesn't mean the establishment necessarily does, and creating a tribe that is at odds with traditionalism and progressivism creates more interesting internal conflict.



    Oh, I recognize that. But I think current trends in the real world can add a new wrinkle. If the Revised setting was about how the Get had purged the racists, purists, and extremists from their ranks, or at least shushed them into silence,...
